We walked here from rizal Park and found its quite a nice walk. Plenty of tricycles try to offer you tours but once you are inside it quiets down. There are a few restaurants and shops and it's a nice old town to see.
I grow up here. Not much has changed over the years here and it is a bit sad.
There are so many historical attributes and stories these buildings can tell. I believe that if they clean these areas up more, it will attract more tourists...More
We did a quick visit to Intramuros checking out the different sites spread throughout. Lots of Spanish influence on the architecture but due to all the cleanup from the damage inflicted by World War 2 the historical buildings are mixed in between modern and rundown....More

I believe you can ask any taxi driver. Mainly the push bike ones. They are everywhere in intramuros and all have maps they are great to go with as they are not expensive and are a wealth of information. It was one of my favourite things I did and takes between an hour and 3 depending on how many of the places you visit

Hi, Intramuros would be a fairly easy walk from the cruise ship docks. It might take about 30 minutes. The easiest route might be to walk to the main cathedral and fort area. They are on the edge of the Intramuros.
